Client Testimonial

”Chet Gohd is the Greatest Realtor In The Business!

Never have our expectations been so pleasantly and thoroughly exceeded! Chet recently helped my wife and I purchase our first home in California. Despite our limited knowledge of Oakland, Chet took no more than one afternoon to help us locate the neighborhood we wanted to live in, and he had our home styling preferences dialed within three house visits in that same day. Having been born and raised in Oakland, Chet’s an expert of this market like no one else.

Chet is charming, patient and incredibly knowledgeable, but what really sets him apart from every other realtor in the business is his commitment to making his clients’ dreams come true. When we signed on the house, we assumed we wouldn’t be hearing from Chet again until we sell one day years from now. This was not the case. Our home is a bit of a fixer upper, and without having to be asked, Chet took the lead interviewing and scheduling time with contractors and engineers. He drops by to make sure we’re settling in well, and he’s always available to share advice on everything from remodeling permits to the best pizza joint in the neighborhood.

In summary, Chet is just an all-around great guy, and we look forward to a lifetime of his friendship and mentorship.

If you’re in the market for a home, do yourself a favor and schedule some time with Chet. We promise, it’s the best decision you’ll ever make!”
